Overview

Overview

Plymouth Marjon University (St Mark & St John) was founded in 1838 and originated in London as the UK’s first teacher training college. We moved to an attractive single campus in Plymouth in 1973, near the stunning South West coast of Devon and Cornwall, and achieved University status in 2013. When you study with us, you’re never just a number. We make sure that financial, emotional and practical support systems are firmly in place at every turn. Thanks to small class sizes and high contact hours, you’ll get to know your course tutors personally, as well as spending lots of time with your course mates. Marjon Student Union (MSU) also put a great deal of effort into encouraging all students to mix together and have great times. You can get involved with many sport clubs and use our fully equipped Sport Centre with world-class facilities including a floodlit 3G pitch, climbing wall, 25m indoor swimming pool and gym. All this adds up to a great student experience. The University of St Mark & St John ranked joint 35th out of 160 universities in the country for student satisfaction. We showed the highest percentage point increase of any university for student satisfaction this year, scoring 89% for overall student satisfaction and 100% student satisfaction for some courses (NSS, 2016). The University of St Mark & St John works with a range of partners from the sectors of education, sport, health and the creative industries to provide innovative programmes of teaching and applied research which result in very high levels of employability. The University was named best in the South West for Education degree programmes by The Complete University Guide in 2016. We were also ranked 4th best University in the UK for sports facilities by Times Higher Education in 2016 and are the only University in South West England to hold laboratory accreditation by the British Association of Sport & Exercise Sciences (BASES). Plymouth Marjon University is a trading name of the University of St Mark & St John.
